This is a shot of my brothers, on the bank of the Columbia River. It\'s my first challenge, and I hope to get some helpful feedback.

PS - To everyone who commented that I should "clean it up", I don't have any photo editing software. Too expensive...

I like the b/w! Good job

Nice idea, poses, B&W choice. Better focus and sharpness on faces would help, and the white socks distract from the faces. Lower perspective might also be more dramatic.

good idea but you should clean up the picture a little

Nice idea for the challenge and it looks like the boys cooperated well. The B&W conversion lacks an overall contrast.

Good take on this idea. A little more sharpness would help empasize the "aloneness."

very nice

the shots needs a bit more contrast imo... play with levels and curves adjustment in any photoediting software.

lighitng is kind of flat

Great idea, the black and white could do with a bit more contrast for my eye. And maybe a little sharpening too.

Ah, a third one with the same title (mine plus another). And all three have different interpretations. :) Nice thought. It would grab me more with more contrast.
